Didn't get this story
I didn't really get this story. A guy escaping from a crime is hidden by a new captain on a ship. The captain helps him escape, but it all happens so fast, and was left feeling like "Huh? What just happened?" I really didn't get the point of the story.
Gregg is a good reader; his recording quality is always top-notch, but the story was really lacking.
